Hey all, I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 22 y/o, feeling way too young to have back pain but here I am...
Been having back issues for years. I think what began it was a soccer injury when I was 13-14, collided with someone and fell straight on my back. Ever since that day was never able to stand up straight, bend forward and touch toes, right leg would spasm. Thought nothing of it for years, then started working different part time jobs past 4 years.
All went to hell about 7 months ago, was working at a restaurant in the kitchen, lots of standing, right leg back started tingling some days then one day helped a supervisor move a keg even though it was not part of my job description. About 30 min later had severe pain, burning.
Left that job, tried to heal first two months,, kept getti.g worse. 5 months ago saw dr's, had first epidural in April and 2 more (2 in S1, 1 in L5) in May.its been about 6 wks since the last series of shots. My symptoms both got worse and changed after the shots
Currently I still have light pain in some positions, but feel prrtty good laying prone or standing up. I was not able to sit for the past month, but am able 2 since the past few days but it is still uncomfortable.
Any tips,'m help, support is welcome, I feel, too young to have these problems.
Please forgive typos I did this on my phone because I really hate sitting at the comp right now.
